Previously funded grants

NCIIA’s grant opportunities are the mechanisms through which we identify and support university inventors who are addressing pressing social problems with innovative and entrepreneurial solutions. To date, over 180 companies have launched that were supported in their early stages with NCIIA grants and training.


The E-Team Program provides early-stage support and funding of up to $75,000 for collegiate entrepreneurs working on market-based technology inventions.
